Slides from today’s Reston SPUG presentation

Thanks to everyone who came out to see me speak at the Reston SharePoint User Group today! Today was my fourth (!) time speaking at Reston SPUG and I was so excited to chat with everyone who had such great questions about updating legacy SharePoint customizations to the add-in model.

Special thanks to Kurt Greening and Dan Usher for all the hard work they put in to running this outstanding group, to LaBrina Loving and Microsoft for hosting us, and an additional shout out to Kurt for saving the day with his 4G mobile hotspot–giving me the internet access I desperately needed for all of my demos!

There was some discussion around customizing the new “modern” team sites and experiences in SharePoint Online. I wanted to share this article on customizing modern team sites if you have not seen it already. I mentioned that the SharePoint Framework provides a viable option for updating legacy custom web parts above and beyond what can be accomplished using the add-in model. As Vesa Juvonen explains in this article, SharePoint Framework will also eventually provide a “more controlled way” to embed JavaScript customizations on modern pages, so please keep an eye on that as it continues to evolve. The good news is that you can still use the PnP Provisioning Engine with modern team sites!

Here are the slides from my presentation today. Feel free to leave any questions you may have in the comments. Thanks again to everyone who came out and spent some time with me at Reston SPUG today!
